Meet Team Blue Knights Baking Angels ~ June 2015
Featuring LCpl Robert Henry II
Debbie Porter Henry is another proud Marine Mom! Thank you, Debbie for contacting us to support your son during his deployment! We're proud and honored to be able to help.
Debbie shares, "Robert is from a small town, Henderson, West Virginia. He loved playing sports in school. Baseball, football, basketball, soccer, and wrestling."
She continues, "He has always wanted to serve our country. He joined the USMC because he had always heard they were the toughest out there and if he was going to do it, he was going to be a Marine."

Team Rakkassan Baking Angels ~ June 2015
Featuring Zachary Miller
Our July team was nominated by Carolyn Bray, cousin to Tracy Farmer, Zach's mother-in-law. Thank you, Carolyn, for reaching out to us to and allowing us to support Zach!
Tracy has been working with me tirelessly to secure these wonderful photos and information about her son-in-law during his deployment. Recently, Tracy learned that Zach is in the running for the "Soldier of the Quarter Award" for the 101st and everyone is most proud of his accomplishments! Our Angels wish you the best of luck, Zach!
Tracy shares, "He is an Auburn University football fan. He likes Captain America, the comic and the movie. He loves to hunt and fish and ride four wheelers. He likes target practice. He was able to shoot a gun that my Paw Paw brought home from WWII. He was thrilled by that. He is an excellent marksman. He is the oldest of three boys. He graduated from Cherokee County High School in Centre, Alabama, a very small, close knit town."

The Story Behind Cindy's Baking Angels....
Four years ago, following my retirement from middle school teaching, I set out to find an outreach program that would give me a sense of accomplishment.
A friend led me to Bakinggals.com, an organization which supports our deployed Troops. I became a team leader and now 4 years later with over 225 Angels in our network, "Goodie Boxes" are shipped monthly to our deployed Troops.
Our "Goodie Boxes" are as diversified as our Angels. Baked goods, comfort items our Troops need, plus some fun and creative items are sent lovingly each and every month.
We are always seeking Troop referrals and welcome Angels to our network. Scroll down and see how you can become an Angel or Refer a Troop for a future team!
Thank you for visiting and please share with friends and help our Mission to grow!
We are seeking one referral for August and two for September! Refer your deployed Troops today!
Deadline for August referral information is July 10th! First come, first served! Contact me today!
For more information, see "Referrals" and nominate your Troop today!

Cindy's Baking Angels builds its Angel teams monthly, in affiliation with Bakinggals.com.
"Baking GALS (GALS stands for Give A Little Support) is a group of volunteer bakers from around the country who bake and ship homemade goodies to our heroic military men and women who are currently deployed in a war zone. Our goal is to show our support and send a little bit of home to remind them that we appreciate all that they do for our freedom." Bakinggals.com
Each month I sponsor a different Military recipient(s). Recipients are often referred to me by family members, friends, and by our military recipients themselves. Any deployed Military Troop is eligible. To refer a special Troop, please see Military Referrals for more information. Our services are free of charge to all Troops.
Once Cindy's Baking Angels selects a recipient(s), information is published on Bakinggals.com. Team sign-up can only be completed through Bakinggals.com and prospective members must be registered for their site.
Team building begins the 24th of the month and shipping is from the 1st - 13th of the next month. Team size is limited to 20 members. Baking is not a requirement. Often members send toiletries and other comfort items to help make our Soldiers' lives a little easier.
Once team sign-up is complete, I provide a detailed Team Newsletter with tips for shipping, baking, and other tricks I've learned that will be of help to newbies as well as veterans. I support my team unconditionally and any questions or comments are welcomed.
If you're seeking a communicative and supportive group, then Cindy's Baking Angels is the right match for you. Come and join us!
